If your house has been ringing wedding bells lately, today’s article is going to come in handy to awaken your inspiration. We are attending more and more banquets and even outdoor ceremonies, so we are going to focus on ideas for weddings in gardens and outdoors. And this type of weddings have a special charm, a bohemian air that only nature itself gives you, and we love them! The inspiration in today’s article really doesn’t have to be wedding-specific in the literal sense of the word. These ideas will be perfectly valid for any type of event that we organize outdoors and where we want to have a good time with our favorite people who want to prepare something special. So take note, what party you have in mind!
Of course, a celebration as personal as a wedding or a special event of these characteristics, has to reflect the personality of the protagonists. Photos are the perfect decorative element to give that personal touch. In addition, they will also serve to make your guests participate in the decoration and make them feel special.
Specific beer bars or “beer bars” are in fashion. To me, honestly, it’s a fashion that doesn’t bother me at all … I’m sure many of your guests don’t either, so dare and use it in your celebration, you can even make it yourself.
Light bulb strips
String lights, hanging bulbs and garlands have long been here to stay in our decorations. And it is normal, because they fulfill the function of lighting the spaces adding an air of story. Especially outdoors, they are the ideal decoration to achieve the warm and magical atmosphere you are looking for on a special night.
If we continue with the personalized decoration, a great option is to opt for DIY centerpieces, made by yourself. They will be easier to get than you think, you just need some wooden cuts and some glass picnic jars (also known as mason jars, their name in English). Add some flowers in your wedding colors and you will have the perfect and unique ornament.
Candy bars are nothing new in celebrations, but you can take them one step further. Find the sweet that you really fall in love with and make sure no one can resist trying it. For example, making a wall of colored donuts.
Have a special detail with each of your guests by creating personalized cards. Botanical cards, that is, with the name of each one written on some botanical element such as a leaf, are the latest and bring more nature to your table. Perfect for garden and outdoor weddings.
Traditional gifts? No, thanks
If you want to get your guests to really remember your special event, look for a memory of it that is surprising. Some gift that really reminds them of you and that everyone likes or is practical, no more traditional wedding gifts, please!
Choose your favorite drink and create a bar with it in all its versions, so that your guests have several options. Here there is a great variety to choose from, it can be a juice bar, slushies, sangria … Or, already surprising, a cider sangria, a typical Asturian drink that will not leave anyone indifferent (throwing a little for the land, what he).
An area for the little ones to enjoy at their own pace is something that everyone will appreciate. Prepare a play area, a teepee, anything that helps them have fun. What better than a children’s corner in the open air so that they too can enjoy that special day in their own way, right?
The decoration with recycling and eco-friendly is something that we always like. There are many already used elements that you can use in an outdoor decoration and that will make your party more original. An old ladder, for example, can serve both as a shelf for gifts or drinks and as a decoration for your table.
